thing you can speculate about is that perhaps chuck hagel's views as expressed in recent years are entirely consonant with president obama's and having lost rice, he doesn't want to lose again and he's prepared to go through an arduous confirmation. if these really are president obama's own personal views on how to deal with israel, what to do about the iranian nuclear weapons program or what not to do about it, i think that's very, very troubling and a marker of what the next four years will look like. >> the one that seems of most concern to americans is chuck hagels former position, maybe president obama's position, on israel. >> right. i think hagel has said really remarkable things, things that i think frankly border on outright anti-semitism so that's going to be a major subject of his confirmation hearing. maybe we'll see what used to be called a confirmation conversion where he attempts to recant those statements. he's done that on another subject, his view of gays and lesbians in public life. he says he has changed his view. he certainly hadn't said anything on that until

obama's approaches that of ronald reagan. he does not get into specifics or bring in everyone in the room. that is not his style. joe biden fill that in. he was an independent for 36 years. he served with mitch mcconnell. it had broken down obviously between the president and the speaker of the house and the speaker could not deliver the republican membership. it was by a default. but for them, there was not a deal. >> reelected president to is committed to a certain strengthening of the entitlement state. heanted health care to be universal. he has this idea that his job, his mission is to fix the increasing inequality in the country. i do not think he has any interest in cutting entitlements because he thinks it will hurt the ordinary american. you have a republican party committed to attacking the debt and that is why you have a stalemate. apart from the personal, petty stuff, that is the major issue why we are stock. as mark indicated, they elect a republican house, and that is why everything is in a stalemate. >> look at the new congress and house speaker john boehner's problem.

america's news headquarters. >> today a new year and a new fight in washington. president obama and congress are set for another fiscal show down over the borrowing limit. democrats say congress must raise the debt ceiling to pay the bills. republicans insist any debt hike should be accompanied by spending cuts. >> my idea is to have a comprehensive view. we talk about tax simplification and fairness as something we should be engaged in long before the fights came along. now we have a chance to do that with a heightened awareness bit public on why we need to do certain things. let's put on the table what it is we can in order to increase revenue. >> it underscores the appetite for more taxes on the other side. we resolved the tax issue a few days ago. everyone taxes are going up because that is how the law was written. a few days ago 35 percent of -- 95 percent of senate republicans voted for tax release for the american taxpayers and not a single republican senator voted to raise anyone's taxes. >> molly is covering this live from washington, dc. what is the latest? >> rather than
